Re: Bookmarks manager for the Documentation Center [DC]?

To open an item in the Documentation Center this bit of code will
work...

OpenDocCenter[link_String]:=FrontEndExecute[FrontEndToken["OpenHelpLink",
{link}]];

And the relevant string appears at the top of the Documentation Center
when you are at that location.  So, ofr example the tutorial for
"Functions and Procedures" has the link

"tutorial/FunctionsAsProcedures"

and

OpenDocCenter["tutorial/FunctionsAsProcedures"]:

will take you to it directly.

So it is a matter of storing these links and using this bit of code
(or something similar to it) to create what you are wishing.

For example you could have a notebook of buttons and your own
commentary on those buttons.  Here is an example of such a button:

Button["Functions and Procedures",
 FrontEndExecute[
  FrontEndToken["OpenHelpLink", {"tutorial/FunctionsAsProcedures"}]]]


I hope that this helps....
